‘Rock & Research’ fundraiser on Nov. 5 to benefit lung disease, cancer, and heart disease research at UTHSCT

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

On Friday, Nov. 5, 2010, you can relive the ‘80s and raise funds needed for research into lung disease, cancer, and heart disease at “Rock & Research” on the grounds of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, at the corner of U.S. 271 and Texas 155.

From 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. dance to live ‘80s music by Dave Stanley & the Lone Star Boogie Kings. Dine on Mystic Pizza Bites, Beetlejuice Brownies, and other fun finger foods by Corazon. A cash bar also will be available.

You can play arcade games like Pac Man and Asteroids or join a buy-in poker game for a chance to win Dallas Cowboys tickets.

Tickets are $50 each before Nov. 5 and $60 at the door. The casual dress fundraiser will be held outside on the UTHSCT grounds, with proceeds going to support biomedical research at the Health Science Center.

To purchase tickets, contact Wendy Frizzell at (903) 877-5805. More information about the event can be found at www.rockandresearch.com.
